A great excuse to get out for some solo and double-handed race training

The COVID SHAKEDOWN RACE is set for Saturday 6th June 2020

At the request of a number of our Double-Handed friends, THERE WILL BE A DOUBLE-HANDED CLASS for teams that comply with current Covid Social Distancing rules. We set the precedent a few years back in allowing a two handed Class 40 start, and in these strange times generally devoid of Club yacht racing activity, it makes sense to be cooperative.

As this event is being pitched as a season warm up training race you do not require a valid IRC Certificate, however without one a TCF of 2.000 will be applied!!!

We realise this is short notice and some of you may not have your boats ready, so we are staging this as a FREE to enter non-points scoring Inshore Race. A great excuse to get out on the water, get a race in, and use as training. Whilst it is non-points scoring, we will have a prize for this race at the annual prize-giving, so no excuses!!

The usual SORC rules and safety critera will apply, amended to allow a Double-Handed Class.

As Covid rules currently stand, solo yacht racing does comply. However, there will be no formal apres race social and we have to return home for the night. So the the race will be started and finished in the Central Solent to make things as viable as possible. If restrictions are eased, then we can modify the plan.
